In Germany the former titles are now seen as part of the family name, so it figures in officials documents, but it gives the wearer no special legal status. In Austria neither the former title no the words “von” or “zu” figure in legal documents, they are not considered part of the name.

Of course they are not a ruling family, and the old laws of equal marriage have no legal standing anymore. But that cannot keep conservative people from sticking to the old traditions. It is obvious that many of the old noble families try to influence their children when it comes to the choice of spouse.

These families make sure that their children grow up in close contact with other young people from their social group. So of course love matches between them do happen. E.g. I have the impression that the match between Sophie and Georg Friedrich is based on a very strong love.

There was this one docu about aristo women and their hunt for aristo men, because like you said, they will lose their status if they marry "below" them. Quite sad, but on the other side, we live in post-monarchy Germany...

If the Isenburg parents are really that way, well, I´m glad that Victor gave a hoot.
